In any Big Data or advanced analytics solution, the orchestration layer plays an important role in stitching together the heterogenous environments and operationalizing the workflow. Your overall solution may involve moving raw data from disparate sources to a staging/sink store on Azure, running some rich transform jobs (ELT) on the raw data, and finally generating valuable insights to be published using reporting tools and stored in a data warehouse for access. Azure Data Factory is the extract-transform-load (ETL)/extract-load-transform (ELT) service offered by Microsoft Azure.
